My son is in the 5 grade . He is doing very well. Copper mill elementary is by far the best school for any child.

I have 2 kids that are new to Copper Mill. We have been very pleased with the administration and staff. They get lots of homework 4 nights a week, but they are making A's so it is working.

They are very focused on state scores and pay little attention to the day to day learning of the children. Extremely displicine orientated and unwilling to access needs of children who may need special condition learning (ie. 504, IDEA).

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
